i've been with sprint for 9 years now.
my current 'grandfather' plan: 1000 anytime, 500 text, night and weekend at 7, free mobile to mobile, free 3 any number calling. 39.99 - 20% company discount = about $36 bucks monthly (never go over my minutes) my contract has been up for a few months and i have the crappy Upstage phone.

my sister and her bf have the data plan for 129. me and my fiance added ourselves to their plan for 20 bucks more each and both got the HTC HERO for 129 each after all the haggling and discounts i got out of them. our bill (for 4 people after 20% company discount) will be 155 so i'll be paying about $38.50 a month but will have data, unlimited internet, unlimited incoming/outgoing mobile calls, unlimited text.

i'm having second thoughts though about the phone.......is HERO the best one to get?

I have the HTC Eris which I believe is the Verizon version of the Hero.

Quote:
In many respects, the HTC DROID ERIS is a close cousin to the HTC Hero on Sprint, as both have similar hardware specifications, including a 3.2” capacitive touchscreen and 5MP autofocus camera. In a world of smartphones, and as competition grows, it all comes down to personal choice and price.
It really is personal choice. What do you need, what do you want. The phone is awesome. Once you get used to it, it becomes simple to use. Read the review linked. Unless you were looking for some kind of iPhone status you've probly made the right choice.

Here's a link to a Hero review (http://www.htc.com/us/products/hero-sprint#reviews - broken link), at the bottom of the page is links to product support.

Overall, I found the HTC Hero to be the best Android phone I've tested, and a worthy competitor to the iPhone, the BlackBerry and the Pre.
